favorite justice was david souter because he was so delightfully on a. he didn't have a cell phone or computer. he didn't have an answering machine on his phone. he was late for william rehnquist funeral because they couldn't leave a message and find out where he was. he doesn't like electric lights to read he moves his chair and not his office over the course of the day for the sunlight. but the great thing about justice souter is that he sort of got the joke about being a supreme court justice and he understood that he was important but it wasn't all about him and i will just give you one example of that. for reasons that remain obscure, david souter and stephen breyer are frequently mistaken for each other. if you know what they look like they really don't look anything like but, you know, people may have a vague sense of who they are and one time not long ago, justice souter as he did was driving from washington to his home in new hampshire and he stopped at a restaurant to get something to eat and a couple came up to him and said i know you come and you are on the supreme cour

at 90. david souter 69, sandra day o'connor 75. is there a tradition of when justices usually retire, be it age, or time served? >> well, they're like most human beings. a lot of factors weigh in. there is -- there was a tradition where justices would tend to retire during the term of a president that was at the same party that appointed them. but we know neither justices souter nor stevens did that. they were both republican employees and went out during president obama's term. life circumstances can drive retirement decisions. so it's really not scientifically predictable or politically predictable. >> do you see any most likely candidates if another seat opens up under president obama? >> you know, i think if president obama, first of all, justice ruth bader ginsburg i think the pressure to replace her with another woman appointee would be enormous. we've made progress in getting a third of the court female and i don't think president obama or any president would want to go backwards on that. so some potential people for justice ginsburg, if you're looking at the likely women, the

david souter before he moved into the legal academy. he is going to be offering his thoughts on the arizona immigration case, so would you please welcome professor peter spiro. [applause] >> thanks, tim. um, when tim proposed the order for this sort of grab bag panel, i should have remembered that it's always hard to follow sex. [laughter] and drugs. but we'll try, um, here. and it's an important case that i'm going to be talking about here, the arizona v. united states case, which is really the most important decision from the supreme court on the intersection of federalism and immigration in more than 70 years. and i'm going to make, um, three sets of observations. first, look at the question of who won and who lost, which is something that's been debated a little in the wake of the decision this past summer. secondly, i'm going to take a somewhat critical perspective on justice kennedy's majority opinion in the decision. and then, thirdly, i'm going to look at the, what i think the impact of the decision is going to be on the, on the ground going forward, on what room is t
